View Full Version : Need tutorial on the postprocess part of an interior render

Hello, I would like to know if someone could help me on this.
I wonder how to do the post process part of an Interior render.

I think it's a big part of the work to make a render looks real and it's done in a soft like photoshop. But what are exactly the steps required?
I've tried to make shadows colder but i'm not satisfied with the results.
And sorry for my poor english. :)

You would really need to learn how lighting works first before you try to attempt to make the "perfect" interior render first. It really doesn't matter if you use a global illumination rendering either. With interior scenes, you have to factor in light bounce, which because of the walls of a room will scatter light in all directions, so changing shadow color alone will not work. Creative use of area lights, spotlights, point lights and directional lights all at once will also improve your render. Light color also plays a role, as it determines the time of day. Here are some sites that might help you out...

And one of my personal favorites -

Hope this helps.
